Rolling Stone Magazine's article about the great and unique John Lennon is a very good piece of journalism full of important information about the late Beatle. However, it shows a negative side by affirming that the dream was over after his death. Without him, U.S. entered the Reagan Era and England was ruled by Tatcher's iron fist. His death didn't put those people in power, they were elected before that sad day. John was murdered the same way people die in wars: senseless and absurdly. His life stopped and he became more than immortal. He's everywhere and his music is present in every aspect of everyday life. It's hard to miss Lennon, just in the physical plane. John is still pretty much alive when people protest against the war in Iraq, against violence, racism, intolerance, bigotry, social injustice, and specially when people feel pain. He's pretty much there and the sound of his music, from the very "Love Me Do" to "Woman" is soothing, powerful, in-your-face, romantic, introspective and good, very very good.

It's impossible to imagine a world without the Beatles, and the Beatles without him. Enjoy the article!
